Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Cypremort Point [Video]
A lot of us travel to Cypremort Point for the view. There's nothing quite like the picturesque colors displayed when the sun sets across the waters of Vermilion Bay. However, those who were enjoying that usually calm and serene setting on Saturday saw something they don't normally see. A plane making what appears to be a very unplanned landing.
Witnesses at the scene told KATC TV that they believed the plane was either out of fuel or there was an issue with the engine. If you look at the video posted above, it does appear as if the plane's propeller is not spinning. Fortunately, the aircraft was fitted with floats and made a successful, albeit hard, landing.
According to the KATC report two people were on board the aircraft at the time of this unplanned landing. Neither pilot nor passenger reported any injuries. The incident remains under investigation.
